The extremely controversial presidential election, which saw Hilary Clinton battle with Donald Trump for the White House, drew numerous comparisons to the HBO fantasy series ‘Game Of Thrones‘ thanks to the two worst candidates in US election history.
Following the announcement of Trump’s victory, author George RR Martin wrote a blog post, which he titled ‘President Pussygrabber’, detailing his absolute dismay at the result, finishing off his short post with an infamous quote from his A Song of Ice and Fire series: “Winter is coming. I told you so.”. Following his post he even set his current mood to depressed with a crying emoticon.
How would you liken the election to ‘Game Of Thrones? Leave a comment below!
George RR Martin’s words after the result.
“There are really no words for how I feel this morning.
America has spoken. I really thought we were better than this. Guess not.
Trump was the least qualified candidate ever nominated by a major party for the presidency. Come January, he will become the worst president in American history, and a dangerously unstable player on the world stage.
And the decimated Democrats, a minority in both House and Senate, do not have the power to hinder him.
Over the next four years, our problems are going to get much, much worse.
Winter is coming. I told you so.”
